1949 Nancy Drew Journal

A couple weeks ago, while thrifting, I found a 1949 Nancy Drew book! It was in mild condition. eBay priced it anywhere from $5.00-50.00, and there was an abundance of "The Clue of the Leaning Chimney" on eBay...so to me it wasn't worth the hassle of trying to sell it. But the color, texture and character of the book inspired me to make...




Process:
I started by cutting out pages from old Anthropologie catalogs, Elle Decor magazines and notebook pages. My goal in making this journal was to inspire myself, so the pages I cut were whimsical, creative color combinations, fun shoes, etc. (This took the longest.)
After I had a TON of pages ready, I started gluing them right into the Nancy Drew book.
I glued over the words, leaving the chapter ends and beginnings open - I plan to write in the margins and white space. (See below pictures for some of my pages.)
Every few pages, I would tear out the pages with lots of text and little room for writing because I didn't want the book to be too thick after all thepage alternations.

I LOVE IT! 






The great thing about this journal is that it is lightweight and VERY easy to carry in my purse. You never know when an idea will strike!

I've used it to write little poetry one-liners and DIY project ideas. What would you use it for?
